Matchup to Watch

Deron Williams vs. Kemba Walker: Willams is a tough cover for Walker, because he’s so big and strong.

Observations

• The Bobcats tried to do a Ben Gordon-for-Kris Humphries deal. The Nets passed, but that would have been an expensive sub-for-expensive sub trade.
• Former Duke defensive stopper Billy King is getting his second act as an NBA executive. He ran Philly for a long time, now he’s assembling the Nets.
• Reggie Evans, pound-for-pound, might be the most physical player in the NBA.

Tap-ins

• The Bobcats play three of the next four at home, but the opponents are no picnic: Nets, Thunder, Celtics.
• Byron Mullens sat out all but three minutes of the Portland game due to a knee injury.

Did you know?

Now-Net Gerald Wallace is arguably the most impactful player in Bobcats history. For the first time in nine seasons, he might fail to average double-figures scoring.
